Reviewed 7 May 2014

We loved this pub, it was friendly, good looking, clean and had an excellent choice of drinks and great food at amazingly reasonable prices (main course £8 or less, litebite meals £4.95, southport shrimps). Very close to ainsdale beach and dunes absolute must if your in southport.

“If I was a fisherman I wud deffo rest here...”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

I had been told by a few people how good the fisherman's rest was so I thought it was about time I tried it for myself. And I wasn't disappointed in anyway what so ever.. fantastic food service and very clean. I booked a table for my parents the weekend after I had been and they also enjoyed their experience of the fisherman's rest. Deffo goin again.

“Food lovely and Mark and Helen gave excellent service”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I can't understand the poor reviews for the food and service at the Fish. The place is always packed - lunch and evening. I have been going a couple of times a month for about 2 years and you can't beat these prices for the food and the service you get here.
I went in for a sandwich on Thursday and the ham was an inch thick. salad lovely and there were chips too.
Jon's steak and ale pie is so tasty that I always look forward to another visit. I have tried most of the meals and never faulted one of them.

“Good value lunch”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We called in for a quick lunch before going on to a family gathering in the afternoon. It was a sunny day and the car park was nearly full. Many tables were reserved but we found an empty one easily. We expected a wait but our order was served quickly, and was substantial, hot & tasty.

Good selection of beers and friendly efficient staff.
